Announcement of a divorce involving a member of the Trump family has recently emerged.
Vanessa Trump has decided to part ways with her husband, Donald Trump, Jr.
From Fox News:
Vanessa Trump filed for divorce from her husband, President Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., on Thursday in New York City.
As first reported by the New York Post Page Six on Thursday and confirmed by Fox News, the president’s daughter-in-law filed in an uncontested proceeding in Manhattan Supreme Court, meaning she does not expect a legal battle over custody of their five children or assets.
“After 12 years of marriage, we have decided to go our separate ways. We will always have tremendous respect for each other and our families. We have five beautiful children together and they remain our top priority. We ask for your privacy during this time.”
New York Daily News has more:
Last month, Vanessa, 40, was taken to a hospital after opening an envelope addressed to Trump Jr. containing a white powder. A note accompanying the powder — which was later determined to be corn starch — read “now you get what you deserve,” sources said. A Massachusetts man, Daniel Frisiello, 24, was charged with sending the material.
Nancy Chemtob, who is not involved in the Trump case, but previously represented Matt Lauer’s wife, Annette Roque, said the “uncontested” filing did not guarantee the divorce would remain that way.
“What could be so bad that you just can’t wait?” she said.
Junior and Vanessa have five children together.
